Smoking and your oral health

You will be aware that smoking is hazardous to your health; but did you know that smoking can have a hugely adverse effect on your teeth and gums?

Smoking causes some of the biggest dental problems, from infection, gum inflammation, chronic bad breath and tooth discolouration, to teeth loss and cancer of the mouth. Smoking makes treatment of dental problems difficult, and maintaining oral health virtually impossible, which is why we encourage you to quit smoking. Start to enjoy the feeling of clean teeth and a fresh healthy mouth with advice from the St George Dental team.
